The Community Town Park

Our Community Park is highly regarded by the community and lots of effort goes into keeping it nice. It is the perfect place to host small and large picnics and relax for an hour, two hours or the day. The shelters can be used if open or you can reserve them to be sure you have the space you need for your reunion, large family or business picnic. The pavilions have adjacent grills. The entire park is also available to host large events. In the past the park has hosted Pow Wows, The Garrett County Celtic Festival, Friendsville Days, Car Shows and the Fiddle and Banjo Contest.

All private rentals of the entire park require approval from the Mayor and Town Council.

There is a very nice riverfront area for wading and playing in the sand and a handicapped accessible paved walking and cycling loop.


When renting the pavilions the group is responsible for the cleaning up of their pavilion(s).  The garbage may be deposited into the town dumpster beside the town maintenance building.

Please help us keep our Community Park clean and safe.  If you see vandalism please contact the Garrett County Sheriff at 301.334.1911 or the State Police or a Town Council member.
